The property

Boasting beautiful views over Clew Bay, this detached cottage sits entirely on the ground floor just 2.5 miles from the harbour town of Newport, County Mayo. Providing homely accommodation, this former farmhouse in Newport is ideal for a romantic break for couples wanting a peaceful stay in this idyllic area in the beautiful county of Mayo. The compact, cosy sitting room is lovely for enjoying quiet nights in front of the solid fuel stove and snuggling up on the sofa with a glass of wine with your loved one. The well-equipped kitchen contains everything you’ll need for preparing intimate meals and the two comfy double bedrooms are sure to provide a restful night’s sleep to guarantee you are refreshed for another day exploring the Mayo sites. Outside your delightful Newport cottage, you have a front lawned garden with furniture where you can enjoy sunny days dining alfresco or simply relaxing in the peace and quiet with a good book. The nearby village of Newport with its selection of various shops and pubs lies along the shores of Clew Bay; famed for its water activities and sea angling. Newport also boasts many varied walking routes for the more energetic amongst you including the Burrishoole and Mulranny Loops. Further afield, you will reach the beautiful Achill Island where you can take pleasure in some surfing or kayaking on one of the many beaches in the area. Castlebar is also just a short distance and here you can visit the Museum of Country Life or enjoy a round of golf on one of the many challenging course. The memories you will make at your lovely Newport cottage will have you coming back time and time again.
